Accessible Door Solutions

WITH SO MANY DOOR OPTIONS IN THE WORLD THERE IS SURELY A SOLUTION TO FIT EVERYONE'S NEEDS. OUR FAVORITE WAYS TO INCREASE ACCESSIBILITY IN A ROOM IS TO START WITH WHERE YOU ENTER. HERE ARE OUR TOP WAYS TO FIND THE PERFECT DOOR SOLUTION FOR YOUR SPACE AND INCREASE OVER ALL ACCESSIBILITY



1. Barn Doors


BARN DOORS ARE FOR MORE THAN JUST MODERN FARMHOUSES. THEY CAN BE A REALLY COOL DESIGN ELEMENT TO ADD IN WHEN A SPACE IS CALLING FOR A STATEMENT PEICE. WE LOVE USING MODERN LINES WITH RUSTIC ELEMENTS FOR A MORE TIMELESS COMBINATION. THIS DOOR SOLUTION IS PERFECT TO USE WHEN A POCKET DOOR IS NOT FEASIBLE AND A DOOR SWING WOULD GET IN THE WAY OF THE USER OR DESIGN.



2. Pocket Doors


POCKET DOORS ARE A CLASSIC WAY TO AVOID DOOR SWINGS. THINK OF THESE AS A HIDE AWAY DOOR THAT DISAPPEAR INTO THE WALL WHEN NOT IN USE. THEY CAN BE A REALLY SMART DESIGN SOLUTION TO AN ACCESSIBLE SLIDING DOOR. POCKET DOORS REQUIRE SOME CONSTRUCTION TO INSTALL AND ARE BEST PUT IN DURING A RENOVATION OR NEW BUILD CONSTRUCTION PROCESS. THEY CAN ALSO BE DIFFICULT TO THOSE WITH COMPROMISED HAND FUNCTION WHEN INSTALLED WITH THE STANDARD HARDWARE.



3. Spring Close Doors


THINK OF A DOOR LEADING INTO A GARAGE, OR FRONT DOOR. THESE DOORS TYPICALLY HAVE 1-3 SPRING HINGES THAT ALLOW THE DOOR TO CLOSE ON ITS OWN WITH MOMENTUM. IF REACHING OR LEANING BACK TO CLOSE A DOOR IS A STRUGGLE, THESE SPRING HINGES CAN BE MODIFIED AND INSTALLED TO ALMOST ANY KIND OF DOOR. THIS MAY BE AN UNUSAL REQUEST TO A CONTRACTOR, BUT JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS NOT STANDARD DOES NOT MEAN IT IS NOT NECESSARY FOR YOUR LIFE. WE LOVE GETTING CREATIVE WITH THESE KIND OF SOLUTIONS FOR OUR CLIENTS.


4. Automatic Doors


AUTOMATIC DOORS ARE NOT JUST FOR COMMERCIAL SPACES, THEY CAN BE INSTALLED IN A RESIDENTIAL SETTING AS WELL! AUTOMATIC DOORS COME IN VARIOUS STYLES THE MOST COMMON ONES BEING THE PUSH BUTTON DOORS AND THE MOTION SENSOR DOORS. PUSH BUTTON DOORS ARE COMMONLY INSTALLED IN HOMES AND CAN BE APPLIED TO A TRADITIONAL DOOR OR EVEN A BARN DOOR. THESE ARE THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR THOSE WHO ARE LOOKING TO PASS THROUGH ROOMS WITH EASE, PRIVACY, AND THE CONFIDENCE IN KNOWING THEY WONT BE BANGING UP WALLS TO TURN AROUND TO MANAGE A DOOR.
